Just back from The Festival of Gnarnia (and in advance of his big U.S. tour in October), British-born electronic artist Ott plays the Asheville Music Hall. His musical history dates back to late '80s London where, in a sea of acid house and rave sounds, he “discovered a new wave of artists who apparently shared his love of organic dub and pristine electronics." He mastered his studio skills (working with the likes of Brian Eno) before moving on to synthesize his own dub soundscapes as well as remixes. Thursday, Aug. 16, 10 p.m. Aligning Minds and Push/Pull also perform. $12 advance or $15 day of show. http://ashevillemusichall.com.
